So I want to get a set of forks for my Dirty Harry 29er that I am building up. I want it to be a race bike, circa 9.5kg, but also capable of big days out - currently looking at SID and REBA forks, but they look like they have the same travel, same weight and similar damping technologies (there's the sales blurb that tells me how much I will get out of RCT3 vs XX vs Black Box damping blah blah but I am a fit and forget kind of rider - I am not going to be adjusting the damping every time I hit a different type of trail. They will be well looked after whichever I get though.
So, what's the difference between the Sid forks and the Reba forks? Which is lighter and which is stiffer / better for XC type riding?
The Rebas are cheaper - that's a key feature at the moment!
